Nick Luck Daily Ep 144 – On David Mullins

Nick is joined by broadcaster Jane Mangan to consider the premature retirement of the hugely talented David Mullins, and asks what it tells us about the demands that the sport places on riders and the expectations on a jockey born into a racing family. Nick talks at some length to David’s father Tom, a successful trainer and scion of one of the most influential and important dynasties in Irish horseracing. Nick and Tom then discuss a range of topics, including the Charles Byrnes scandal and the domination of the major stables. Later in this edition, Nick talks to Simone Sear, Director of Welfare at Racing Welfare about developments to its 24/7 Racing Support Line.
